NOVEMBER 13, 2017—BEFORE THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE EARTH—Ephesians 1:4

“According as He has chosen us in Him before the foundations of the world”. How can we possibly understand anything before the ‘foundations of the earth’? How can we explain a time when there was no matter, no motion, no space or even time . . . by using a word that we don’t fully understand ourselves? And how is it possible to really grasp the fact that we were chosen, “according to the foreknowledge of God” […]

NOVEMBER 10, 2017

The heart that learns to die with Christ soon knows the blessed experience of rising with Him, and all the world’s persecutions cannot still the high note of holy joy that springs up in the soul that has become the dwelling place of the Holy Spirit. A. W. Tozer

NOVEMBER 9,2017—AWAKE DEBORAH—Judges 5:12

Women have played a vital role in the plan of God. From Eve, Sarah, Leah, Rachel, Abigail, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba (mother of Solomon), to Mary (mother of Jesus). And in addition countless thousands have given encouragement to their husbands who have in turn changed the course of history. One such woman was Deborah.

“A faithful woman, who knew God and dared to risk all upon His word, meant more to Israel in this time of crisis than all […]

OCTOBER 26,2017—IMPENDING JUDGMENT—Habakkuk 1:2

God is love, and it is a joy to speak of that love and how it is shed to all people and His children in particular. But, God is a God of judgment also and we best not forget it. In the Old Testament book of Habakkuk the prophet faced a similar situation to today. Evil was everywhere and Habakkuk asked God, “O Lord, how long shall I cry, and You will not hear? . . . Spoiling and […]

OCTOBER 14, 2017—I’LL FLY AWAY

The son of a tenant farmer in the Indian Territory that is now Oklahoma, Albert Brumley quit school after tenth grade and didn’t have much of a future to look forward to–except to pick cotton for the rest of his life. Then, when he was sixteen years old, he attended a singing school in his farm community of Rock Island and discovered he could sing better than most adults and he could harmonize, too.

So at nineteen he went to […]

OCTOBER 6, 2017—I WILL AFFLICT THEE NO MORE—Nahum 1:12

Time after time in the Old Testament God’s people strayed from Him and fell into sin and idolatry and for that reason the Lord allowed them to be afflicted by nations around them. During the prophet Nahum’s life (700 BC) it was no different. The most powerful nation in the world, Assyria, had been afflicting God’s people for many years but finally crossed the line and Nahum declared that Assyria would be destroyed. Within 50 years the Babylonians so […]

OCTOBER 3, 2017—TRADITION—Mark 7:9&13

We have all heard the story of the little boy who put his hand in a jar to obtain a piece of candy, but then to his surprise could not get his hand back out. In somewhat of a panic he went to his father and explained the problem. His father, very calmly, told him to open his hand and stretch his fingers out. But the boy exclaimed that he could not do that because he wanted the candy. […]

SEPTEMBER 25,2017—LIFE’S PURPOSE—John 18:37

Mark Twain said, “The two most important days of your life are the day you were born and the day you figure out why.” This question is infinitely more important for the Christian than for the rest of the world. God created each of us with a purpose ~ to go through life not knowing what that purpose is would be an enormous tragedy. Jesus came into the world (as recorded in the key verse) “to bear witness to […]

SEPTEMBER 23,2017—FORM OF GODLINESS—11 Timothy 3:5

“One can be so proud of his doctrinal soundness that the Holy Spirit cannot convict him of the unsoundness of his life. Vain men give to one another a special recognition as having great power and position in this heavenly kingdom by virtue of a proficient learning in languages and Biblical history, or skill in doctrinal analysis.

 

If the faith of illiterate fishermen did more for the establishment of the church in a few years than centuries of prodigious scholarship, […]
